Music to include: 
Tchaikovsky  Piano Concerto No. 1 
Stravinsky  Firebird Suite

We return to the Royal Concert Hall for the first time since our 30th anniversary concert in 2016. Over 200 young musicians from our orchestras will take to the stage for a celebration of Russian music. 

The training and intermediate orchestras will perform a variety of music including classical favourites, film scores and traditional folk songs under the direction of Dave Leeder and Chris Hoggarth. 

The senior orchestra will perform under the direction of James Lowe who in recent years has returned to Nottingham to conduct the orchestra on many occasions (he also played viola in the senior orchestra as a teenager). James is Chief Conductor of both the Prussian Chamber Orchestra, Germany, and the Vaasa City Orchestra, Finland. Passionately committed to the belief that classical music is for everyone, he balances his conducting schedule with his work to engage new audiences and a long-standing commitment to youth music.

Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto will be performed by talented Nottingham pianist, Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, a category finalist in BBC Young Musician of the Year 2018. Jeneba currently studies piano at the Junior Royal Academy of Music in London.
